April 6, 2016–Watermelon Magic, produced by Spring Garden Pictures and distributed by BIG & Digital, LLC, will have special screenings on Earth Day weekend (April 22-24) at Pacific Science Center IMAX Theater  in Seattle, Washington; IMAX Victoria  inVictoria, BC, Canada; Science North IMAX Theater in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada; Telus World of Science IMAX Theater in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada; Springs Preserve in Las Vegas, Nevada; and Hastings Museum RealD 3D Theatre in Hastings, Nebraska.

Watermelon Magic is a tender film about young Sylvie who sees the magic in growing her own food and sharing it with others. The film is great for audiences of all ages. The film colorfully highlights Sylvie's passion to grow watermelons from seed-to-flower-to-fruit. The plants ‘magically’ grow and come to life with special time-lapse sequences created from more than 200,000 still images animated to motion—an expert technique which gives this film a unique and dynamic style. The film explores the elementary scientific concepts of the life cycle of plants. Through humor and drama, audiences experience the challenges and rewards of farm-to-table and community supported agriculture.

As part of the Watermelon Magic Earth Day screenings, each theater will give visitors seeds compliments of Seeds of Change. Theaters are also conducting an online social media contest to give away a beautiful gift basket, including a DVD and book autographed by the producer and Sylvie, plus lots of garden tools and playful items.
